Exmark or Toro

I need to replace my John Deere JX85 21" mower, it finally died after 1750 hours. :angel: I have got specs on Toro's 21" and Exmark's Metro 21 and 26" mowers. I like some features in both of them. Too bad they can't take all the features I like and make me a mower. Anyway, is there any feedback on which mower would be better. :help:

Same damn thing. Except exmark offers the 26''. Either company makes decent mowers, go with the better dealer of the two, thats one way to narrow it down. Or if you can find a used Toro with the 2cycle Suzuki, I would look at that too.
